Thank you so much for the links! I've just discovered that the "stripped catfish" that I bought a few years ago is in fact a Flying Fox!
It died over the christmas holidays, managed to jump through a small space in the glass (for the auto fish feeder) while we were on holidays. He was approx 4.5 inches long. :o I loved that fish, he was beautiful to look at. :(~Col~

I was just wondering about my SFF a few days ago. Then he got eaten and I found out he was actually a SAE. I could have saved myself from a lot of research if I just joined this forum earlier.26 gallon- 1 Clown Pleco, 3 Rummy-nose Tetras

You might go through liveaquaria.com, which also carries SAEs. They're more expensive, but more likely to arrive healthy in my limited experience. If it weren't for those gigantic shipping expenses...
I need to get some, though. I'm getting a some black hair algae on the edges of my leaves, and I've heard SAEs will eat it. Plecos, ottos, nerites, and mollies--my usual clean up team--won't touch the stuff.
Do flying foxes eat algae at all, or are they just pretty bottom feeders? They ARE pretty little guys.
